#ThinkDo:

  • Investigate skateboard design by the company Exploratorium
  • What will a designer have to consider when designing skateboards?
  • Interview skateboarders to find out their wants and needs
  • Compare the Stair-Rover skateboard to a more traditional design. What are the advantages and disadvantages of both. Which would you recommend?
  • How would you improve the design of a skateboard?
